Any particular reason why? The FE is my favorite lens but it's more of a specialty item.
Lots of reasons. Look at your stats in opening post. The wide end of everything gets more attention. You like wide. Look at your reply to post #10. Its in post #11. You like wide. You own a FE. Disney is a really good place to use it.
Other than that, the FE gets GINORMONGOUS DOF. Environmental is what wides do best. Family member(s?) in front of attraction, with Goofy, or whatever. Shooter relatively close so subjects are significant part shot. Disney provides the huge, expansive, colorful background you are capturing, in focus, with the FE.
Kids see the world a lot wider than adults do. With their ADD-like minds, they can take in a lot more than an adult. The kids will remember Disney as mind-blowingly huge, expansive, busy, and wonderfully colorful. Capture it that way for them.
The distortion of a FE and Disney just seem to go well together.
Adults tend to see things a lot more focused and specifically. Most adults, even the photographers who take the shots, will see things in a wide-angle photograph they did not notice in the actual scene. If this doesn't apply to you and your FE, consider the fact that you too, are afflicted with ADD. No offense intended. Just the way things work.
The only other lens you listed that I'd consider taking is the 50 1.4. That will get you the tighter framing and low light shots you'll want.
While I'm at it, I'd surely trade the S100 for a G15 or G16. They have the same size sensor, and the G-series lens is more than two stops faster at the long end. Being able to capture the HUGE DOF of a small sensor at f/2.8 can make a big difference at a place like Disney. Where else can you get an Image Stabilized 140mm f/2.8 lens you can fit in your pants pocket?
When you are done with this crazy hectic trip, meet me by the adults-only pool at the Rio in LV. I'll buy you a Pina Colada (double-shot of dark rum on top optional) and show you how to take a real vacation.
